A new booklet on infection prevention and control in the home setting has been published in conjunction with the National Clinical Programme on healthcare-associated infection (HCAI) and (AMR) prevention. The booklet aims to provide home helps and personal assistants with common sense information on infection prevention and control in the home setting. Staff seeking further information should refer to their local infection prevention and control guidelines by contacting their line manager, local Public Health Nurse or Infection Prevention and Control Nurse.This booklet was adapted from a booklet that was originally developed by Ms Liz Forde, Patricia Coughlan and Máire Flynn (Community and Disability Infection Prevention and Control Nurses in HSE South (Cork & Kerry)) and has been approved by the Royal College of Physicians Healthcare-associated Infection and Antimicrobial Resistance Clinical Advisory Group (RCPI HCAI/AMR CAG).
